Second death in Canada during skiing this year 17-year-old German dies after crash

RCMP says the racer lost control during his run on Tuesday afternoon and died from his injuries Wednesday in a Calgary hospital.

17-year-old German skier Max Burkhart has died following a crash during downhill training for the NorAm speed races in Lake Louise, Canada.

The RCMP is assisting the office of the Medical Examiner in investigating the death and no criminal charges are expected.

Burkhart was competing at the Nor-Am Cup when the accident happened.

Burkhart crashed into the netting and was flown to a Calgary area hospital by STARS air ambulance after being tended to by ski patrol, doctors and paramedics.

A teammate told CTV News that Burkhart attends school in the United States and was not travelling with the team. He says he skied the course before the race was cancelled and that conditions were good at the time.

" Alpine Canada and Alberta Alpine are devastated about this tragic loss of life and sends its deepest condolences to his family and team-mates".

Lake Louise spokesperson Dan Markham called the death a "terrible tragedy", adding the ski resort staff are sending their sympathies to Burkhart's family and tesmmates.

"Our thoughts are with Max's family, friends, teammates, and coaches at this most hard time".
